Since 2015, Women Build has been breaking biases to empower women in creating a gender-equal world that is diverse, equitable and inclusive.
This year we've joined with International Women's Day! Imagine a gender equal world. A world free of bias, stereotypes, and discrimination. A world that is diverse, equitable, and inclusive. A world where difference is valued and celebrated. Together we can forge women's equality. Collectively we can all #BreakTheBias.
Women Build offers a unique opportunity to bond with your friends, family, peers AND your community. We provide the tools and expertise — You provide the hands and heart.
Women Build kicks off the week of International Women's Day, March 10th, and continues through October. Dates are available weekly - Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Register for Women Build to book your team's date today.
Each Habitat home costs about $150,000 to build. A portion of the funds needed to build is raised with the help of Women Build teams. This year, our goal is to raise $37,500. We ask each team to raise $1,250, and to join us on one of our Habitat home construction sites for a day of learning, comradery and giving back!
Get your friends and family to join you in this crucial work to empower women, families and communities!

Through Women Build you can make access to safe, affordable homeownership possible for local families in need. Last year, the majority of the families served by our homeownership program were single mothers who had been living in unsafe, unaffordable or overcrowded housing. With your support, we can help women in our community build strength, stability and self-reliance by becoming first-time homebuyers. Habitat homeowners help build their homes alongside volunteers and pay an affordable mortgage. That mortgage won’t exceed 30% of a family's income, widely recognized as the threshold for affordable housing, making it easier to afford nutritious food, pay for necessary medical care, and save for the future. Together, Habitat for Humanity of NWI and YOU will empower women, families, and our communities.
Habitat for Humanity of Northwest Indiana is the leading organization that provides permanent, affordable housing to income-qualified families in Lake County Indiana. By serving qualified homeowners with an affordable mortgage, we help families achieve housing stability and improve their living conditions. HFHNWI was formed in July of 1986 by Reverend Dick Rogers and has served over 140 families. We continue to work toward our vision; where everyone has a decent place to live. www.NWIHabitat.org
